    TLDR Hair loss treatments include medications and new methods like low-level light therapy, which may work by boosting cell activity and blood flow.
    The document discusses different types of hair loss and treatment options, including traditional medications and experimental procedures like low-level light therapy (LLLT). LLLT has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for hair loss, but more studies are needed to confirm its therapeutic effects. The authors propose that LLLT works by stimulating cellular metabolism and increasing blood flow to the hair follicles, leading to improved hair growth. Overall, the document provides an overview of the various options available for treating hair loss.
